A Yorkshire animation studio that specialises in 3D visualisation and augmented reality for construction and interior design projects has won an international design award for its work with a major UK hotel chain.

Virtual Resolution in Elland, which has one of the UK’s largest specialist in-house teams of 3D creative artists, won the CGI & Visualisation award at the Society of British and International Design (SBID) awards in London last week (October 27) for its work to support the redevelopment of the DeVere Tortworth Court Hotel.

Tortworth Court is an elegant and sophisticated hotel surrounded by enchanting scenery that dates back to the 11th century. Virtual Resolution worked alongside DeVere’s design/development teams to visualise the proposals for the project. The winning visuals have been used not only to inform guests of the redevelopment but also assist the design team and management in specifying fittings and fixtures that will enhance this beautiful building.

Judges included global design professionals from Aston Martin, Google, The Boeing Company and the National History Museum and entries were received from Latvia, Taiwan, the Maldives, Armenia, Rwanda, Sweden, Mexico, UAE and more.

John Hales, director of Virtual Resolution, said: “To have won such a high profile design industry award for one of our key specialisms, CGI and visualisation, is a significant milestone for our company and a tremendous achievement for the whole team.

“Over the past few years have invested heavily to strengthen our in-house expertise and we have introduced some of the latest cutting edge technology to the studio, broadening our capability and reputation for excellence.

“An accolade like this with a strong design focus puts us right up there as one of the best creative teams in the world”.
